Happy to be one of the panelists that will be voting on USports’ weekly men’s hockey rankings this year. I promise* not to give Carleton favourable treatment on my list. *I make no promises about my promises https://t.co/c4xijjuWH1

Me, just now: *grabs recycling bin to bring to street* A raccoon, just now: *leaps out of bin, pushing lid open and jumping to my feet to run away* My heart, just now: —

This is great news for women’s hockey. Now we just need ESPN+ to open up to 🇨🇦 please and thank you. https://t.co/BsgCrm5pzM

The Leafs are 2-1-1, have outshot their opponents 37-28 on average, and Mitch Marner, Auston Matthews, and John Tavares have zero primary points in a combined nine games. Hockey!

Every time I watch 3-on-3, my interest in the shootout grows smaller and smaller. I understand why the players don’t want to add more miles to the odometer by playing longer overtimes, but jeez would it ever be good for the product.

I’ll miss working with Carp, who has always been a great colleague to me and whose work I admire a great deal. https://t.co/Cesm512MaY

Look at Beaumont, blissfully unaware of the lifetime of pain and suffering that awaits him…

Bishop is a 6-foot-4 goalie with a career .920 save percentage in two seasons in USports. Before that, he played three years in the QMJHL (.887 save percentage across 72 games). Imagine being him today. https://t.co/hyDdLFYu3R

It is hard to have a worse first game with a new team than Seth Jones’ tonight. He honestly looks like a liability. Dude’s eight-year, $9.5M AAV deal doesn’t even kick in until *next* season.

Won’t know until we see it in action but this looks clean. The old set ran into trouble for feeling too much like a giant set. This looks modern and manicured without being hollow. https://t.co/32HwkGATaM

Daniil Gushchin has transformed himself as a player, athlete, and person. Staff in Muskegon watched him do it firsthand. The folks in Niagara think he’s the OHL’s most talented player. And the #SJSharks might now be around the corner. My story: https://t.co/5GOZkhe8VG

How many goals is Nikita Kucherov scoring against THAT Pens lineup? https://t.co/yle3AyFhQ5

Vitali Kravtsov, who turns 22 in December, did not make the Rangers’ opening day lineup and is looking into options for a trade. https://t.co/DY08t7NdxN

Come for all of Julian’s reporting on the great NHL soundtrack songs, stay for my defence of Sweetness by @jimmyeatworld as the franchise’s GOAT soundtrack song. https://t.co/wdFWohz3L7

The world may have gotten to know Jalen Smereck's name in the aftermath of the racist abuse he endured in Ukraine, but Smereck's story certainly didn't start there. And it's only just beginning. For @TheAthletic, here's the Jalen Smereck you should know: https://t.co/phFQR43Vwa

Gushchin had some real wow moments at the rookie tourney in Scottsdale. @scottcwheeler with much more insight on the Sharks prospect, here: https://t.co/b8N2s7Sw9M

Tucker Tynan’s hockey career was supposed to be over. Now, 22 months after he was told that even running again might be out of the question, he’s back. And the NHL is in sight. I spoke to Tucker, his mom Ruth, and IceDogs staff about his comeback. https://t.co/ntnoEiCJHc

Really interesting story by @scottcwheeler that is full of whimsy but also challenges us to think a little more deeply about young athletes and their personal well-being. https://t.co/NIQgbwBQ8T

This is a fascinating story with plenty of levity and vivid colour, via @scottcwheeler "The curious case of Popi: Why a 22-year-old NHL draft pick quit hockey to become an ‘influencer’" https://t.co/fx6TVcwd68

One day, he was a 22-year-old NHL draft pick of the #NJDevils. The next, he was quitting, lighting his hockey equipment on fire — no, really — and bringing a giant snake into taxis. So what happened? Well everyone's got a story about Popi. He does too. https://t.co/vtNnjlYaYU
